With great sadness, we announce that Steve Bishop died peacefully last night, July 19th, at the age of 71 after a short battle with cancer. Steve is survived by his wife Ellen; his mother Mary Linda; his and Ellen’s children MelissaJustinDavidJoshua, and Salvatore; the children’s spouses; and their grandchildren.

Steve’s funeral will be Sunday, July 23 at 4:00 p.m. at Holy Trinity Parish, with a hamburger and hot dog cookout to follow from 5:00-6:30. Because of the number of recent losses in the parish community and because of Steve’s love of a good cookout, all are invited to come and relax and eat and tell stories.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in his memory to a fund to renovate the kitchen (and dishwasher) area of the parish.

Please keep Steve and all who love him in your prayers.

O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered: Accept our prayers on behalf of your servant Steve, and grant him an entrance into the land of light and joy, in the fellowship of your saints; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
